Question

lg g6 vs s7 edge vs htc10

Hi.
I wanted to change my phone recently , so at first I started to like the htc10 (because of the clean android , no bloatware and the all around decent-ness) , until I noticed Id have a hard time finding screen protectors , cases , etc for the phone in my country , and it doesnt have warranty in my country and finding a repairman is hard if needed. so buying the htc 10 would be risky.
then I saw the s7 edge is on sale for a reasonable price too (around $100 more expensive than the htc 10) so I considered that as well , but thats where I have my biggest question.

I have seen glass scrren protectors for s7edge but all the comments said that it affected the touchscreen making it less sensitive to touch and all that . are the glass screen protectors for s7edge really that bad or are they the same as other phones' ?
(and by the way , weird as it may sound , s7edge is cheaper than normal s7 in my country , so I wouldnt want s7 , and I dont like touchwiz , so not a fan of samsung , but the s7edge price is nice when compared to my other choices)
then I saw the lg g6 , which I really like , but the software doesnt look good either (i've heard its similar to touchwiz about bloatware , and I dont like how it looks) and the previous flagships have had issues such as bootloops and broken camera lenses , which makes me worry about buying it. i was also wondering if it had any form of themes app similar to htc/samsung which could change the entire look of the phone ?
any recommendations ?
thanks in advance

I'll comment on protections.

It didn't matter which model I used, adding this does reduce sensitivity. After owning a big screen phone for a few years I figured out that I didn't need this at all. I get 2 to 3 years before a deal comes along and I switch phones and I know to not put my phone in my pocket with keys or change so at 2+ years not a scratch. I do however believe and use a simple case. I choose by grip and how it puts a lip around the device so I can set the phone face down and not get a scratch.

Not buying those protectors today.

Help you decide.

Are you a mobile gamer?
if yes I recommend you to buy the s7 edge.
The s7 edge has a 3600mAh batt and has a game launcher for battery saving during games, recording game plays, screenshots etc.

Do you like listening to music, Hi-res music etc?
LG G6 and LG V20 are the only phones on the market that have quad DACs.
Works best with Hi-res Headphones.
LG's battery usually last longer compare to Samsung, less bloatware compare to Samsung.

HTC 10 has the same chipset as the s7 edge
the battery is only 3000mAH, so expect shorter usage time.
Bloatware free is a plus. If you're not a gamer and only listen to music casually then this is for you.
Since you said the HTC10 don't have warranty in your country I'm assuming that you'll be importing it, If you're buying the HTC10 from a legit seller even though there's no warranty most likely the HTC10 won't have any problems, If you're not a heavy user chances are the HTC10 won't break down within in 3years or so. If you're a heavy user expect shorter battery life and battery replacement will be difficult.

I've been using my note edge for 3 years now never bought a screen protector unless you've neglected your phone, your phone won't need a screen protector. The accessories on my phone are a jelly case and a phone holder ring.

Hopes this will help you decide.

Look as far as I know before purchasing mobile, it matters everything like we might want the best camera or the best processor or might be RAM or internal memory, but at the end, everything goes outdated after few month. Again we search for a new one, here we need to compromise on some part, in a way I think S7 edge is the best one! You can also check the reviews for better purchase!
